Good morning. No storms or rain here but we're expecting heavy cloud overnight. Useful - not.
Been pottering with Possum and the two kittens who had a wee shrew upstairs. Safely rescued and released while Possum distracted the kittens so now they're busy hunting where they last saw it. Stupid think squeaked like mad when I released it in the garden. Talk about signalling your position to the enemy!
On Tuesday I asked OH to strim all the monstrous weeds in the potager before they set seed for another 7 years. Wednesday was golf. Yesterday we went out. Today he's sanding rust off the metal gates. They won't get even a hint of primer till mid September so will need sanding again by then and in the meantime they won't be setting seed! Doh!
Congrats Liri and team. Busy - glad the horses have settled well. Chicky - you'll be able to see loads in a month; Did I mention that Oz' best chocolate makers are in Adelaide? And fairy penguins and Hardy's wine not far away? And fab central market?
Dove - I do hope your son's house sale goes thru quickly. Over here there are penalties for either side going over the allotted period for processing legalities and money. 3 months in France, 4 in Belgium. Simplifies things no end.
Hosta - stay off the roads tomorrow! I used to think Sunday trading at SMs and so on was OK as the staff got extra pay. Not so good if there aren't compensations but at least in Belgium if the shop is open Sunday morning it has to close Monday morning. Not sure here in France.
Now to check my pots before making another frock for Possum.
Have a good TGIF day everyone. Almost the weekend.
